Hi there Pretty much as the thread title, my last Mustang was somewhat of a bargain at 35k with all options, this new model is going to cost me just shy of 50k. Admittedly I won't feel the need to spend anywhere near as much as I did last time as the 2018 model is better out the box. This thread is to see what my other options could be for around 50k, lets say 40-60k for arguments sake, absolutely no higher than 60k as intention is to pay cash. The criteria Brand new or dealer supplied with as new warranty, so a 3yr old Porsche with OPC warranty would be fine 400 plus horsepower, ideally closer to 500 and more is fine! RWD or AWD is fine, no FWD! Automatic, NO MANUALS! A nice car to use daily, so no Lotus Exige or Caterham Sound amazing! V8 or V10 ideally, but a six that sounds good is OK Under 30,000 miles and less than 30 months old if not new and supplied with warranty I am making this thread in case their is a car I've not consider, though the lure of the Mustang is big, those killer looks, rarity and gorgeous sounding V8 all in a brand new motor for 50k make it attractive. But I am aware and feel the 2018 will lose 10k in first year, not something I am smiling about but at the same time I cannot see much pulling me away from the Mustang, but never say never. I am sure many will recommend a GTR and I do like them but don't really want to own one and apart from looks the little Golf I am driving now is kind of like a mini GTR. The one car I have thought about is the Alfa and the name I cannot spell, but the M4 rival, its quick, rare and looks well not too much to my taste but I do like it, those are 50k now and seem to continue falling in price. Scary thing is do Alfa give extended warranties because afterall it is an Alfa.
